Just Cause 2 Demo

Steam now offers the promised playable demo for Just Cause 2, the action sequel from Avalanche Studios. (thanks Derek). Here's word on the demo, which requires DirectX 10:
The Just Cause 2 demo features a massive 35 square miles of the Lautan Lama Desert, a vast expanse of stunning, sun-scorched scenery taking up just one of the many islands in the 400 square miles of the Panau archipelago. Packed with towns, villages, military installations, mountain ranges, missions and more, the demo will feature an astonishing amount of activities for the player... and opportunities for adrenaline-fuelled chaos are limitless.

Hunt down and assassinate one of the game’s 50 military colonels; devastate military bases, bio fuel chambers, government infrastructure and more; hijack tuk tuks, military 4x4s, armoured vehicles, mopeds, helicopter gunships, light aircraft, mini vans and numerous other military and civilian vehicles; freefall from desert outcrops or from burning planes at 20,000 feet; and unlock one full, multi-stage mission, traversing the mountains to a heavily fortified government radar station and ending in an unforgettable desert car chase.

"The Just Cause 2 demo is simply massive and with so much to do, the replay value is enormous," said Lee Singleton, General Manager of Square Enix London Studios. "It’s easily one of the biggest freeroaming demos of all time and for fans of openworld games, it’s unmissable."

What programs don't work in Win7? So far I've not run into a single problem.
You must not be on the 64-bit version of Windows 7 or don't play many things released during Windows 9X heydays.

As for a dual boot, it's pretty easy to set one up. (childs play, really.)
Only if you install Windows 7 after Windows XP. The reverse requires manually editing the bootmanager which is not that easy since Microsoft only provides a crude and very poorly documented command-line tool to do so. Plus one thing which Microsoft doesn't tell you is that if you mount Windows 7 drives under XP, the system restore and shadow copy information on them gets automatically deleted because XP doesn't recognize it.

I'd argue that Win7 is worth it solely for the security upgrade compared to XP.
Windows 7 still has its share of exploits. Windows 7's supposed security advantage versus a well-patched Windows XP is greatly overstated especially since Windows 7 has the same version of IE in it which is the main source of the exploits. 64-bit Windows 7 provides some additional protection, but if you have to run unsigned drivers like I do, then you have to disable that protection.
